Enjoy the holiday! We will be spending time with our friends and family. The gym will be closed on 4th of July but we’ll be back in action on the 5th. Be sure to check out the new schedule starting on July 9th! Changes are posted online already.
Happy 4th of July!
First we want to thank all of you who filled out our survey. We appreciate the feedback! We have implemented some of the changes requested by you, our valued members.
The following schedule changes will go into effect on Monday, July 9th. Please view our schedule here on the website or grab one off the counter next time you are in the gym. Please note in order to add classes some had to be removed. We took all your input and put the most popular classes on the schedule. We have added one KB class to Saturday at 12:30. If it goes well, we will add another class at 1:30 and extend Saturday hours. TRX/Conditioning Boot Camp is available to all Standup, BJJ and Full members (it’s considered Conditioning with TRX elements so you don’t need a TRX membership to take it).
Monday — 5:10 pm — Conditioning/TRX Boot Camp with Ryan
Wednesday — 7:10 pm — Conditioning with Ryan
Thursday — 5:10 pm — Conditioning/TRX Boot Camp with Rosanna
Saturday — 12:30 pm — Kickboxing with Angelo/Joseph/Victor
Monday — 4:15 pm — TRX (replaced with 5:10)
Monday — 5:10 pm — Boxing
Thursday — 5:10 pm — Kids’ Class (kids can take 4:15 Conditioning with Kito on Thursdays instead)
Friday — 8:15 am — TRX (little attendance in this class, there’s another on Fridays at 1:15 pm)
Thanks again to all of you who gave your input!
One way we have found to cut calories is to have a healthy smoothie for breakfast or lunch instead of a traditional meal. They’re so easy and so delicious! Here’s how we make ours:
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1/2 cup regular milk of your choice (fat free, low fat or almond milk)
1 cup spinach leaves (they blend up so nicely and make the smoothie a beautiful shade of light green)
1 cup of frozen fruit (you can use fresh fruit with ice instead but we LOVE frozen pineapple in ours)
1 medium banana (we peel ours, break them in half and throw them in a baggy in the freezer and use them frozen in our smoothies)
Blend all items in your blender and enjoy!
If you haven’t already, pick up a copy of Urijah’s book as soon as possible! It’s chalk full of great stories and inspiration. I flew through it in 2 days, literally unable to put it down. I expected to like it because I know Urijah and he’s a great storyteller with an interesting life but I LOVED every page of this book. It’s such a great read, interesting, funny and heartfelt. There is something in this book for everyone. It’s especially great for anyone who is looking for a little direction or motivation to take that next step towards following their passion. Pick it up at Barnes and Noble today! I promise you will love it!
Congratulations to Jeff Stromberg who was presented with his Purple Belt this week by Head BJJ Instructor, Dustin Akbari. Jeff has shown great attendance in classes and has been working hard under Dustin Akbari’s instruction. This is a great accomplishment for Jeff. We are so proud and excited. Be sure to give Jeff a pat on the back next time you see him in the gym.
Great work, Jeff and Dustin!!!
